Rear diff knob working a*** over tit??

Postby voetsekman » 22 Apr 2018, 18:34

Just got my syncro back on the road after an eight year layup, here's a thing after an initial test drive you would think it had square wheels, renewed the gearbox & diff oils and no nasties found, removed the propshaft...smooth as a button!! however the rear locker button is working the wrong way around, as in locked when pushed in and unlocked when out, diff lock appears to be working as it should as is the front. I was told by the previous owner that the VC was running very tight if not seized and he was advised to remove the shaft, so he ran it in 2wd.
So before I start pulling bits off it is this a simple fix? I realize it needs a vc refurb or de-coupler, just need to sort this knob situation out first.
Thanks in advance. Mike

Swap the hoses at the diff lock actuator ;)
